Allied Flag Chat Reply to this Post

I do not know if this has been mentioned before but I think an /ao chat could be very useful (allied flag chat) in the game to speak directly to all flag members allied with your flag

My god, its pure genious. Theres no better way to break down the horrible tangled mass of gigantic alliances than making them really really really annoying to be a part of.

Quick! Implement it at once!

It might work if only the monarch of each flag could use it.

No, actually, it still wouldn't work.

The only good thing about this is it would be a penalty for forming an alliance with every flag you can find.

It would have the same effect as if you had a hearty chat. Since every flag is allied to different ones, you couldn't carry out a proper conversation.

However,

If you could make an Allied Broadcast for calling for help in blockades or perhaps calling for mates to help you pillage that might be an option. I'd only make it available to royalty though.

Anyone suggesting a new chat mode should first ask themselves if it passes this criterion.

suggestion ... why not make the addition of a /on command. Something like /crewon /crewoff. /aon /aoff. That way, we could elect to join said chats, or during things like pillages/etc, they can elect to turn off what you do not need.

Okay, I changed my mind midstream...perhaps certain ones at certain times need to stay on. Crew has no option to turn it off. On a blockade, officers of the blockading crew or flag can elect to turn on mandatory posting (like a flag broadcast).

something liek that...don't blame me, just moved about 50 file boxes....bleh.

we aleady have /tell <pirate> message ...

why not have /ally <flag name> message....

You would have to be royalty to use it and royalty to receive it (you would also need to be allies). And you're specifying the flag, so it won't bleed over the alliance list.

Ah, but what if you added both royalty-between-allied-flags chat *AND* the ability to mute specific chat channels (which mute setting would only last that log-in session.)

As far as i know, muting chat channels has been discussed at length.

The general consensus was against the idea in that you would either appear to be ignoring people (and i guess you would be) or would spam them with 'not listening to this channel' messages. (and let's not underestimate the diplomatic faux pas of muting any potential alliance channels!)

As far as getting messages on existing crew/flag channels you dont want , it's best just to grin and bear it mate.

Bump

Seeing that the Last Posts in this thread have been made in 2005 made me think of the importance of an Alliance wide chat in 2005 and now almost 5 years later ... According to the new developments the game requires a chat like this . It would give huge advantages in notifying the whole web for Wars, Blockades , Events and other things . And for more it would affect the Social Life in game positively .

Please, read the thread BEFORE you make comments, as it is clearly spelled out why this is a bad idea.

Drakoding's referring to allied flag broadcast rather than allied flag chat. I noted that even allied flag broadcast wouldn't really be workable.

The problems with allied flag chat:
  • Recipient replies: Flags A and B allied to a given flag C may not in turn be allied. Either flags A and B won't see the entire conversation going across the channel (only C would) or they'll be surprised to see flags they're not allied with using the channel
  • Misuse (spamming)

The problems with allied flag broadcast:
  • Recipients responding with their allied flag broadcast: It's possible that without the alliance web being complete (every flag allied to every other flag), that different flags in the alliance web will receive different and incomplete parts of the entire "conversation"
  • Misuse (spamming)

The problem of muting allied flag chat/broadcast to deal with spam would be a potential diplomatic faux pas for ignoring communications of an ally, possibly through receiving a status message like "pirate X has muted this channel".
